    911 Bleeding... Again

    This happened before about a year ago, if I had to guess around the same time as now, after my canary's molt (stopped seeing loose tail feathers in/around his cage). What happened was he bites his back, but he doesn't know when to stop and it got to the point where he started bleeding a...

    Urgent Broken blood feather or something else?

    I just heard a massive commotion from the bird room, and Aurélie screech, and when I rushed in to investigate she was in a panic, thrashing around her cage. I managed to calm her down and get her out, and blood smeared over my hand when she stepped up. I've only had one fid break a blood...

    On the cage that Taco came with when I got him, there was a huge hole cut out of one side for the nest box (which I immediately got rid of).

    Broken or dropped?

    Urgent Need help identifying this Lovebird skin problem

    I'm looking for help identifying and hopefully treating this skin issue with my sister's lovebird. The issue started when he was furiously rubbing the back of his neck on his food dish to get her attention. Eventually it seemed that the feathers stopped growing back, and he started itching...

    Urgent Cockatoo Foot Bleeding

    Hello, I have a 1.5 year old female umbrella cockatoo. We noticed a while ago that she had white growths on the tips of her toes, so we took her to the vet. We were worried it could be mites, herpes, bumblefoot, or a number of things. The doctor did not seem too concerned and he gave us an aloe...
